Lea T. Covers Elle Brazil In Givenchy (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Hooray for Lea T.!

Or if we're getting particular, hooray for Elle Brazil, for choosing Lea T. for its December cover. The Brazilian transsexual model looks stunning on one her first mainstream covers ever.

Lea T. lept onto every fashion editor's radar this year, with a swimsuit shoot, her first runway show and even a sit-down chat with Oprah (the pinnacle of any person's career).

But up till now, her magazine covers had been reserved to the lesser-read titles, such as Lurve and Love (where she and Kate Moss locked lips).

This month Lea T. looks chic and pretty conventional on the cover of Elle Brazil, photographed by Fabio Bartelt. It comes as no surprise that she's wearing Givenchy -- as one of Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's favorites, Lea T. has posed in Givenchy ads and worn Givenchy on her Lurve cover.

We're especially loving her wavy, ombre hair -- reminds us a bit of our style idol, Rachel Bilson, non?

See the cover below -- whadya think?
